    We don't know who did it, and it's possible we never will. Regardless, we hope it doesn't happen again, and neither do local school officials.

  • Try these spicy seasonings

    Whether you are roasting a chicken (or turkey or game hen) in the oven or grilling it outside, this spice mixture really wakes up the flavor.

    Brush your bird with olive oil or butter, then rub the spice mixture over and under the skin. Cover and put in refrigerator to marinate for one-12 hours, then roast or grill as usual.

    If you've ever eaten at the Moonlite Bar B Que in Owensboro, you don't need me telling you how good it is.
